FSFindFolder Question - Mac Programming

I am using FSFindFolder() call to find my framework. My framework is in /Library/Frameworks folder (As per Apple) - Unfortunately the call to FSFindFolder does not seem to have an OSFileType definition to be able to find the framework in the /Library/Frameworks folder. The only definition is kFrameworksFolderType which will point you to the /System/Library/Frameworks folder. My question is this - Is there an OSFileType definition that will point me to the /Library/Frameworks folder so I do not have to put our framework in /System/Library/Frameworks folder? Thanks in advance! JB John Bahun Roper Scientific / Photometrics Inc....

    Default FSFindFolder Question

    I am using FSFindFolder() call to find my framework. My framework is
    in /Library/Frameworks folder (As per Apple) - Unfortunately the call
    to FSFindFolder does not seem to have an OSFileType definition to be
    able to find the framework in the /Library/Frameworks folder. The
    only definition is kFrameworksFolderType which will point you to the
    /System/Library/Frameworks folder.

    My question is this - Is there an OSFileType definition that will
    point me to the /Library/Frameworks folder so I do not have to put our
    framework in /System/Library/Frameworks folder?


    Thanks in advance!

    You can tell FSFindFolder to look in /Library by using the
    "kLocalDomain" parameter.

    What are you trying to accomplish? From what little you say, it sounds
    like you might be trying to locate resources and thus are better served
    by using CFBundle.

    Also, consider learning how to embed frameworks into your app. You
    should not have to force installation into /Library, and you should
    *never* contemplate sticking things in /System. I have no idea how
    complex application packages are for Carbon, but it's dead simple for
    Cocoa.
